Paddington Bear and I

I made it back from London!  It was a whirlwind trip doing work, managing jet lag, eating delicious food and a little bit of poling.  In summary London was amazing I ate the best pizza and middle eastern food ever.  
Before my trip I managed to attend a Pole Clinic class which was amazing.  During the clinic I worked again on the dreaded V inversion but this time I actually did it!  My teacher was spotting me but really not even spotting me and I did it!  I was and still am in complete disbelief.  I had the strength and the ability to do it but I was scared.  Why?  Because I was afraid!!!

Who knew something like pole could bring to light how much fear I had been living in.  It’s not something I am proud of and its not the way I will continue to live my life.  

What happens when you live your life in fear?  You miss out on being creative and really enjoying life.  Instead you are always waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Waiting to be told you are in trouble…..apologetic and remorseful.  Constantly looking for the bogey man.

What happens when you recognize that you live in fear and move away from it…..a V inversion!  What else happens? Driving over bridges, flying on transatlantic flights, wearing 8 inch heels, making new friends, and opening yourself up to the world.  I have learned that I am stronger than I think, more capable than I realize, more lovable, and resilient.

Dear readers don’t live in fear.  You are strong and amazing.
